  • Introduction

    Job descriptions, however useful, are generally limited to academic background and professional expertise. The psychological bearings of the applicant are rarely considered when recruiting people for specific positions. Not all individuals are suitable for each job; there are several personal attributes as well that need to be taken into consideration. This workshop will focus on understanding how the capacity and potential of individuals can be factored in to fit the job description. The focus will be on assessment of the personality, intelligence and aptitude of the candidate, which will determine whether they are the right 'fit' for the job. Additionally, the emphasis will be on how to monitor the personal and professional evolution of the individual through their career so that the right kind of people can be sustained in the right kind of job.
